Sunday Lately :: Week 25

Jun 21, 2015

Happy Father’s Day!!  Hard to believe we are this far into June already.  Where has the year gone?  This week’s themes: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Applauding, Scheduling

Completing. Another week of sewing and getting out of my comfort zone.  This week, it’s with PANTS!  I made myself a couple of pairs of SOS Pants, being a tester for Patterns for Pirates.  And I also made a couple of pairs of shorts, for both Louis and myself.  Jean shorts, in fact!  I love mine so much that I have been wearing them more than I probably should since the day I made them.  Whoops.

Visiting. Our downtown yesterday, in celebration of West Virginia Day AND the Wheeling Arts Fest.  We managed to skip the rain for a couple of hours and be able to enjoy ourselves.  There were acrobats, musicians, food vendors, artists booths, a new statue unveiling and just a general fun buzzing happening around the city.  I love that they always have a kids booth, with activities for Louis.  His favorite part is generally the facepainting station.

Repeating. A bunch of curse words.  Because I spent a ton of time organizing my studio space instead of actually being productive.  But hey!  I was able to get everything back in working order and I actually like how it’s set up way more than before.  Silver lining, right?

Applauding. This new planner of mine.  I DIY-ed a new one for myself, completely from scratch.  I mean, even down to the cover.  And I have a mild crush on it.  I think I even used the phrase: “Excuse me while I go make out with my planner.”  I’ve even made some adorable sticker for holidays and vacations, etc.  One day, I might get around to sharing them on here.  Maybe.  

Scheduling. Myself some time for crocheting.  Or at least trying.  I feel like my creating goes in waves.  I’ll be heavy into crocheting and then sewing, and then something else.  And eventually I’ll go back through them again.  Last night, I tried making an amigurumi Minion for the first time.  Well, an amigurumi anything for the first time.  I have issues that I’m not good at following patterns, I like to wing things.  So I did with this guy.  He turned out pretty cute, Louis loves him, but now I know what I’ve done wrong and how I can make adjustments to make this guy perfect.  I think.  And if I do, I will be able to share this pattern on here too.  So many things I want to do.  So little time to do them.
